When I decided on a fire pit for our outdoor patio, I was under the impression that the propane tank that fueled it would hide underneath it. But when I went to hook up the propane tank so we could have our first fire, I quickly realized that a traditional propane tank could NOT fit under the firepit.
Not wanting the large tank to be an eyesore, I got creative and found a propane tank cover that looks like a side table.
Since I didn't want a long hose showing from the fire pit to the propane tank, I decided to use my outdoor rug to cover it. I simply cut a hole in the outdoor rug, right where the firepit sits. Then I fished the hose through that hole and under the outdoor rug to the place where I wanted to the propane tank to eventually sit.
Then all that was left to do was turn on the propane and set the propane cover on top of the propane tank.

If you’re looking at a fire pit that you LOVE but are concerned about the propane placement, I am here to let you know that there IS a way to hide the tank!
